I was born in Philadelphia Pa. I was shipped off at an early age to live with my father’s Aunt in Maryland, where I stayed until the death of her husband, my uncle, when I was seventeen. After a year of bumming around I joined the Army, serving first in Europe as an MP, then finally, in Korea as a Tech Supply Sargent in a missile platoon. In the intervening years I studied karate, bodybuilding, power lifting, guitar and acting to name a few of the things I tried to use to pass the time, all of which were fun but ultimately unsatisfying on the level I sought.
Deciding that it was not the place to find the cure I was searching for, I got out of the Army honorably and tried my hand at skip-tracing or as it is more commonly known bounty hunting, again trying to fill some indefinable void left in me by life. And once again in the end failing to do so.
Finally moving to my final place of residence in Missouri, I was married until recently, during which I developed what few skills I have at writing. I learned to enjoy the simple act of it and so here I am, again trying to complete myself by seeking the approval of others. Will this be the long sought answer to the emptiness of my life? God I hope so.
